College Financial Aid Consultation by Kathy Anderson

Financing a college education is a challenge for many families. I am offering a financial aid consultation

to demystify the process. The consultation can consist of any (or all) of the following:

• Aid eligibility review

• Assistance in completing applications

• Award analysis and assistance in negotiating counter-offers (where applicable)

• Review options for paying the balance, including loan and payment plan options.

Families of college-bound juniors and seniors will benefit the most from this consultation.
